Yes, you read the title correctly. That's the RWA Conference in Atlanta back in 2006.
Where did the time go? Several SPICE books, blogs, videos, Tweets and Facebook friends later (especially the fab bloggers here at Naughty Author Chicks!) I've been thinking about all the wonderful things RWA offers its members.
Especially the annual conference. It's always an exciting time with the RITA awards and the Golden Heart Contest, Here at NAC, we're all rooting for fellow NAC blogger, Cara McKenna, a 2010 Golden Heart finalist.
Here's the official information about this year's conference:
"RWA is proud to host its 30th Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida, at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort, July 28 - 31, 2010.
"Be sure to join us to enhance your writing and knowledge of the ins and outs of publishing at more than 100 workshops; get the inside track at panels and round-tables featuring publishing professionals; schedule a one-on-one pitch meeting with an acquiring editor or literary agent; attend parties and network with the stars of romance fiction; and be a part of RWA's massive, 500-author strong "Readers for Life" charity book signing. And let's not forget the 2010 RITA and Golden Heart Awards." For more information go to the RWA website.
To everyone who is in Orlando at the conference, have a great time! The RWA conference begins today with the Literacy Signing. I'll never forget my first RWA conference. (What girl ever forgets her first?)
So here is a video I made taking you back to July 2006 and the Romance Writers of America Conference in Atlanta.
From the Literacy Signing to the Spice Books workshop to the Harlequin party and the RITA Awards, re-live the conference in this fun video podcast.
Hard to believe that since then, The Blonde Geisha has been translated into French, German, Italian, Spanish, Polish and recently came out in the Czech Republic as "The Geisha with the Emerald Eyes."
So sit back and relax and come with me as we go back to the RWA Conference in Atlanta in 2006!
